Press review

Parker # 146 (4/1/2003) : 92 Maturity: -2017

Undoubtedly the most impressive Saint-Domingue I have tasted, this wine tastes like proprietor Clement Fayat's La Dominique on steroids, opaque purple-colored with a glorious nose of creme de cassis, vanilla, chocolate, and espresso. Once past the ostentatious aromatics, this chewy, low-acid, plump, full-bodied wine is dense, rich, with great intensity, purity, and plenty of power. This is obviously a modern-styled St.-Emilion, but a huge crowd-pleaser and a wine capable of lasting 12-15 more years, possibly longer.

Stephen Tanzer # May/Jun 03 (5/1/2003) : 89

Medium red-ruby. Aromas of roasted plum and stewed tomato. Fat, silky and sweet, with flavors of liqueur-like red berries, minerals and truffle. Finishes with big but sweet tannins and very good length. But a bit heavyhanded next to the 2000 La Dominique, without that wine's verve in the middle palate.
